Tell me about home-based business opportunities?
Would like to learn about home-based business opportunities that a person can pursue in his spare hours every day. I don’t want something that requires investment or having to keep an assistant, I wish to work independently to supplement my income. I am okay with working in front of the PC as well as working outside doing a real job so long as its not too strenuous. Looking for help on ideas. Could do with some extra dollars.
That’s a great question. There are a lot of opportunities online for people to make a little extra money these days. I personally run a home based business and have done a little of everything under the sun since it was started.
You may consider things like working as a virtual assistant for webmasters, running your own blog, freelance work(writing-coding), selling on Ebay.com and so on. None of these options would require any sort of investment to get yourself started.
Since you would also be interested in working offline as well, here are some job ideas I have done or come up with in the past:
Professional Dog Walker
Picking-up and Delivering groceries for elderly
In home computer repair(if you know how)
Really, it comes down to your interests. Sit down and figure out what you enjoy doing, and then you can come up with a way to include that into your business plan. For instance, lets say you love selling on Ebay but don’t have the money to buy merchandise. You could begin selling unwanted items for neighbors, family and friends to build up a reputation and then open your service to anyone interested.
Another example would be, lets say you enjoy working with elderly and disabled people. So you advertise your services in the local newspaper, that says you can deliver groceries, help around the house, read the morning paper to them, run to the store and so on. Now you can accept as many clients as your current schedule will allow for and you are running a home business.
Like I said earlier, the possibilities are endless, limited only by your imagination and interests. The other day I found a site that may help you out with some more options. They have got a huge list of 101 Ways to make money online as well as a great list of home business ideas, the links are below.
Hopefully all of this helped, good luck on your new ventures.
